how the hell do you write financial statements on ledger paper?
taking an accounting intro course and this archaic professor requires everything to be written on this instead of just making spreadsheets
>r just do the work and study. Debits and Credits are insanely easy after practice.
Assets increase on the debit side and Liabilities increase on the Credit side.
Expenses increase on the Credit side and Gains increase on the left side, right?
unfortunately it's the only professor teaching it. i'll probably get used to it but the first class she regurgitated chapter 1 and then told us to use ledger paper where the book references software
For my first class we used notebook paper. What is the difference?
Top is title for the income statement plus date and maybe company.
Then your credits on left, debits, last one is only used once for a bottom total.
I'm amazed this is even possible.
Take it up to the dean/school administration with the other students. Knowing accounting principles is half of the job, the other half is being proficient with software.
What would you think about a computer course using only Windows 1.0 (pic related)? Useless, like your teacher. He is refusing to teach you the skills you will need to get a job. No one, nowhere still does paper accounting.
You are paying to be trained for the job market, and your teacher is not doing it. Do not let this go on for a whole year, or will lose one year of your life.
